According to multiple reports, the Nets will sign Blatche to a one-year, $1.4 million deal.
Free agents can't officially sign until July 10.
For Blatche, though, he'll still be making a lot more than $1.4 million. Because he was amnestied by the Wizards two seasons ago, they still have to pay him the difference of his salary for what he agreed to in Washington. Which is about $7 million.
Blatche adds a bit more depth to the Nets' newly stocked frontcourt, which just added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Blatche was used primarily as a rotation big last season, and he showed flashes of the player that earned that big contract from the Wizards.
Blatche, 26, averaged 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds last season.
